My wife and I decided to escape the summer heat and the smoke from wildfires that has been spilling into the Rogue Valley over the last few days. Even though the fires are quite a distance away the air quality here is severely impacted. So, a two hour drive to the coast and ocean breezes seemed like a good idea. The coastline extends from the California border to the state of Washington, a distance of 363 miles (584 km). The photo shows what the coastline looks like pretty much along the entire way.
The route is popular with bicycle riders, many of whom make it a days-long trek. These travelers had started in Portland and were headed south to San Francisco.
